Stayed at the H10 Princess in January and liked the way the hotel was run but didn't care for the location. We found Timanfayer Palace loved the location and booked for three weeks in November. We are half way through our vacation and are certainly enjoying our stay. The only downside in our room there are no drawers to put our clothes just the tiny ones in the bedside cabinets, and not enough space for a three week stay. Our only real concern is nearly every time we get on sun beds we are having to move because of smokers coming next to us and " stinking " the place with their vile habit. Smokers are such a minority now, so why let them spoil the greater majority of guests pleasure? We have spoken to many other guests about this and all non smokers are incomplete agreement.More

Very good with one exception
This was our second holiday at the Timanfaya Palace. From talking to other guests it's clear that it attracts many repeat customers and for good reasons. This is a high quality hotel. The food is of a very high standard with a vast range of choices. The only thing could be improved is that, as vegetarians, it would be good to have more choices. The staff are generally very helpful and friendly. The entertainment team led by Hector really makes a difference to our enjoyment. Emma, Josue, and Meteja led on the games and activities which we particularly enjoyed as they are a chance to try new things and meet people. The evening entertainments are generally good and some are very good. The only downside this year is that last year we found the beds too hard, particularly with bad backs. We were provided with mattress toppers which solved the problem. With this in mind we emailed the staff in advance to ask for them this year and we received a reply to say it would be arranged. On our arrival we found they had not been provided. We're reported this to reception and only one topper was provided with one bed untouched. It took repeated complaints to finally resolve this because they could not get any over the weekend. Finally provided after four days. This is the only reason I do not rate with five stars. More
Lovely hotel with good views of the bay
Went as privilege members after staying in another H10 hotel. Found Timanfaya Palace to be not quite as luxurious as we hoped for. The bed rooms were very clean but a little dull where we were. The hotel grounds were looked after very well but some staff went that bit further than others. The food in the main restaurant was fantastic and the buffets were replenished regularly. Restaurant staff were very pleasant & worked very hard. We were not as impressed with the a la carte restaurant where the staff were not as attentive and the food not up to the standard. Bar staff were very good all overMore
A room without a view!!!
First impression of the foya was it looked shabby, only to find out it had recently been refurbed! Aparently going for shabby chic Egyption bazzar look - we though just shabby. Check in was quick & unhelpful - very little info provided unless you paid for Privilege - even had to help ourselves to a drink. Then we went to our room & were horrified! Our room number was 021, which was in the bacement!! We looked out of our window onto a steep slope of black gravel & nothing else & smelt of damp covered by loads of air freshoner. We went straight back to reception to complain only to be told it was a 'standard room' - substandard more lile!! We were able to move round the corner to 027 still in the bacement, looking at a slightly less steep slope of black gravel plus a bit of sky & the tops of peoples heads as the walked along the path but not damp smelling. We were told they could not move us up a floor until Saturday - so upset I never unpacked. On Friday we got a letter saying if we wanted to move on Saturday we had to vacate the room before 10am & take our cases to reception, then go back to reception after 3.30pm to ask for a new room! WHAT!! No room or access to our cases or safe place for passports etc for a whole day - totally disgusted! We realised now why, when we were checking in on Thursday, there were several couples impatiently asking if their new room was ready yet, We decided we were just going to have stick with 027 and like it, but it really spoilt the holiday. Otherwise - the food was ok, the pool areas were lovely & the outside pool bar was very nice & should be open in the evening as well as; not everyone wants to sit inside after dinner. The bar staff in the pool bar & upstairs bar were very nice & helpful. Not too impressed with the entertainment though. But to be honest we were so disappointed with the room issue that we probably found more faults elsewhere. If we had been on any other floor the views were lovely & I think we would have had a totally different attitude & better holiday. But we will never go back there again.So the main thing is make sure you don't get given a room on 0 floor as it is awful. They really shouldn't let our those rooms they were disgusting - I mean who would happily pay £1000 per head to look at a black slope.More
Second visit this year
We love this hotel, the location is ideal for a lovely stroll into town. The rooms are large , no tripping over one another. The television had the main English channels though we didn’t really bother, better to catch up in the UK when it’s cold and miserable. We did have the bonus of gorgeous weather. The hotel has an undercover pool which has the temperature of a bath and where the aqua aerobics are held. The gym is well furnished with bags of equipment, had a really good look at these (LOL). The food in the restaurant and pool bar is varied and delicious. This is the only place where the vegetables are so nice I fill up my plate. The staff are so welcoming and do everything possible to assist, thanks especially to Pepe and his team, never failed to find us a table. Also I must say how thoughtful everyone was, Service Yes that’s doing the job they are paid to do, however 2examples of the extra mile. There was an older lady on holiday alone. Every morning her table was waiting with coffee so she didn’t have to go looking around for a table, I watched staff take out time just to say hello. Also a disabled gentleman who had trouble getting up and down in his seat, again no fuss someone was there to help. Having been going here for a number of years, the hotel is definitely starting to look tired and dated. While we were there some refurbishment was progressing, it is needed climbing into a bath for a shower is very old fashioned now. The grounds are well tended and I love the outdoor pool. The policy with the sun beds is ideal , (no bagging before 9.30 or towels removed) that poor lifeguard the abuse he suffers from people who bag sun-beds at 6.00 and then disappear until mid day - he deserves a medal. There are plenty of beds and you can always find somewhere to sit. One tip if you have an early flight and arrive at the hotel before 2.00 then pack a beach bag in the front of your suitcase. We had access to drinks etc but a few hours to wait for our room. So down to the pool we went. You are given towels so you only need the sun wear and sun cream. When we went to our room our bags were waiting. Also a big thank you to the room staff we were kept topped up with towels, chocolates and the weather forecast for the next day. Thanks to everyone at this lovely hotel for working so hard to give us a good holiday and see you in April. More
